THE LONDON LOOK

When Zoe Zhang was four, she fell in love. Her mother brought home a shih-tzu pup and Zhang was smitten. After a 16-year relationship, her furry pal passed away and Zhang moved from China to London to study illustration. “In London, I could see dogs everywhere,” Zhang says, “I found the lifestyle of dogs in the UK so different to the dogs in China. In the UK, dogs can be taken on the train, in shops and cafés, and you don’t see many homeless dogs.”

Zhang’s dog spotting encouraged her to start a project drawing four-legged Londoners. She’d do a quick sketch in the park and then recreate each one at home as a collage. Mostly in black and white, Zhang’s works are full of life, movement, and texture, with funny titles like ‘Beer Belly’, and ‘Look! Beautiful Lady’. “When I draw dogs, I realise that the relationship between dogs and owners are really like parents and children,” she says. We tend to agree.

PACK OF DOGS

Have you ever imagined Amy Winehouse or Nick Cave as a Chihuahua, Neil Young as a Vizsla, or PJ Harvey as an Afghan hound? That’s exactly what San Francisco-based artist Michael Gillette has done through his unique illustration project, blending beloved, iconic music legends, both past and present, with their dog counterparts. Pack of Dogs, our first foray into book publishing, is a celebration of pup and pop culture for music and dog lovers alike.

GLORIOUS BASTARDS

Built to battle with any and all elements—while looking wildly cool—Bastards is for design-loving humans and dogs with plenty of attitude.
